Photo ID Optional Here

Hey, thanks to all who've sent in photos and videos so far. I'm still accepting the former at RichardSRussell@tds.net, and you can contact me there to obtain a procedure for sending me the latter. Photos are going up gradually on the "Photo Album" tab of the "DR Wedding" website, but there doesn't appear to be a ready way to post videos to the blog. (Maybe YouTube; still to be researched.) Of course, Abigail and I still want to see them, so don't let lack of a widespread distribution mechanism deter you from passing on any that you might have taken.

Anomalous Data

This "news" is over a month old now, but I thot I'd share it anyway. When Abigail and I were supplying the deputy county clerk with the info needed for our marriage license, she had already obtained our birthdates (and thus our ages) when she got to the part about "First marriage for both?", to which we assented. Her eyebrows rose slightly as she observed "Well, that's going to skew their statistics!"


Post-Wedding Peace of Mind

At least one person liked the wedding well enuf to blog about it under the title "Geek Weddings Are Best". That's exactly the effect we were shooting for.

On a related note, photos are starting to arrive, and we're posting them under the "Photo Album" tab on this blog. Thanks to all contributors.


Pre-Wedding Peace of Mind

So, tomoro's the big day, and the question naturally arises: "Are you nervous?"

We'll let Don Knotts answer that one for us.


Weather Forecast

We had hoped that scheduling the wedding for May 22 would let us hold it outside, but it's Wisconsin, after all, and there was always a chance that it would be miserable weather. But it looks as if the odds being always in our favor worked out OK:


Alternative Seating

If the prospect of bringing your own portable chairs or blankets seems daunting or unduly inconvenient, there is an alternative available. There are picnic tables in the park shelter that can be dragged nearer to the proceedings (which will be on the adjacent grass) that provide seating for 6 adults or 8 kids. But be forewarned: those suckers are heavy, and you have to put them back where you found them afterward.


Beautiful Music

You may recall that we've warned elsewhere on this blog that parking is likely to be tight at Brittingham Park, so you should consider meeting friends at Wright Middle School and carpooling from there. You probably also figured out for yourself that, even so, it would be good to arrive early at the park to get a good spot. We've even advised some of you with mobility problems that you really should contact the Wisconsin DoT to get a handicapped-parking tag.

All of that is still true, but here's a positive incentive to arrive early: the preludes will be some of the most exquisite music on the planet.
